Media Resources Center, University of California, Berkeley


The Media Resources Center (MRC) is the UC Berkeley Library's primary collection of materials in electronic non-print (audio and visual) formats. These formats include: videocassettes, DVDs; compact audio discs; audiocassettes; and online (streamed) audio and video. The MRC collection is intended to support the broad range of study and research interests on campus. There are particularly strong holdings in humanities and social sciences materials, as well as a broad range of general interest materials in the fields of science and technology.

The MRC permanent collection comprises materials in a wide range of subject fields, with emphasis on titles which have broad interdisciplinary interest. The collection includes dramatic performances; literary adaptations; speeches; lectures and events; primary source recordings, such as historic TV commercials and newsreels; and documentaries, including one of the strongest collections of works by independent film and video makers in the US. The collection includes a large, study-level collection of international cinema works, including works useful for the studies of the movies as social and cultural indicators and representations.
